Access Route to RAD Teacher Registration
Ballet West is the first and only vocational ballet school in the United Kingdom to offer students a ballet teaching qualification in partnership with the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), a global leader in dance education and training.
The Royal Academy of Dance is one of the largest and most influential dance education and training organisations in the world. The RAD is renowned for setting international standards in dance teacher training and this partnership will allow students at Ballet West to become eligible for the Royal Academy of Dance Registered Teacher Status (RTS) once they complete both online coursework and a practical module.
Delivered at Ballet West by the RAD, the programme is designed to run alongside our Higher Education courses. This partnership will offer students the unique opportunity to train as a professional dancer graduating with a BA (Honours) in Ballet while simultaneously achieving a professional teaching qualification with the RAD.
The Royal Academy of Dance certificate opens the door to teaching in 80 countries and graduates will also be given access to the RAD International Jobs database.
